I really enjoyed the communal living with fellow students and the variety of people you live with. It is very easy to meet new people, and the fact that Aberdare Hall is part-catered is particularly helpful in this way. It is in a great location - only 5 minutes from the Students’ Union and 10 minutes from the city centre.
